"Cane" Spoilers: Finale on December 18?
CBS' Florida-based soap "Cane" may have come to the end of the road. Although the show hasn't been canceled (yet), it doesn't look too good for the Jimmy Smits fronted drama, as the ratings continue to plummet and CBS gets ready to burn off the remaining episodes in December.
Following last night's preemption for Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the drama will be back next Tuesday at a special time of 9/8c with a 2-hour installment.
Then a week later, on December 18, the network will air episode #113 which may end up being the show's series finale.
"Cane" premiered on September 25 pulling in 11.12 million viewers and finishing second in the timeslot (beating ABC's 90-minute premiere of "Boston Legal").
The show then gradually bled all the way to 6.46 million viewers who tuned into last week's episode. The writers' strike may have been the only reason CBS kept the show on air.

Next week, as hurricane strikes, Alex and Frank are held at gunpoint by looters in the Duque home. Meanwhile, Isabel gets trapped in an elevator and Santo protects Artie during the storm.
Then in the second hour, Jamie is about to get married, while Ramon and his gang handle security outside the event after Alex is tipped off that Joe Samuels has plans to disrupt the wedding.
Finally on December 18 (at the regular time 10/9c), Alex is framed for the murder of Joe Samuels. He takes matters into his own hands and begins to investigate the case himself.
